I threw my first golf disc in 2003 with a friend, but it wasn’t until 2012 that I bought my first disc and played recreationally on my local course (a small, open field 9 hole). In 2017, I incurred a life-changing traumatic knee injury that impacted my ability to participate in competitive sport. I was frustrated, and unable to feed my competitive fire, but in May 2018, a friend invited me to join him for a round of disc golf, and it changed my life. I moved from playing disc golf a few times a year, to playing several times a week and playing multiple tournaments a year. I have now played rounds on over 100 courses in 7 different countries, and served as Tournament Director, Chair for a provincial disc golf committee, and Committee Member for a national disc golf organization.
I have been dedicated to lifelong sport development. During the last 15 years of my life, I have been passionately working to grow sport at the youth, amateur, collegiate and professional levels. As a DiscGolfPark course designer, I now utilize my years of professional experience, combined with the knowledge gained from all of the courses that I have played, to design creative and fun courses for people of all ages and abilities. I have worked with school groups, youth organizations, as well municipal and federal government agencies to aid them in the design and building of courses suitable for the needs of their community.
